S. Korean spy chief says teenager joined Islamic State group

South Korean officials say a teenager who went missing in Turkey last month is probably the first known South Korean to join the Islamic State group. Opposition lawmaker Kim Kwang Jin said Tuesday that the director of South Korea’s National Intelligence Service, Lee Byung-kee, told legislators in a closed-door meeting that the 18-year-old man is alive in Syria and with an Islamic State group unit that trains combat personnel.
